Listen To Hezron New Track Smile Today

Today, Jamaican vocalist, songwriter and producer Hezron Clarke has released the charming visual for his single “Smile Today.” The single is the fourth release off his album M.O.A.M. (Man on a Mission) which came out this past summer via Tad’s Record (Ernie Ranglin, Tanya Stephens) and debuted at number 5 on iTunes Reggae chart in August, just below albums by Bob Marley and Stick Figure. The album currently remains in the Top 10 on the Clinton Lindsay New York and South Florida Radio Chart.

“Smile Today” is a song that Hezron hopes will become as iconic as the Bob Marley track that has become an anthem for Jamaica, “One Love.” Directed by Devon Morris, the video follows Hezron in the villages of Jamaica, while capturing the smiles of the local people. The song and video serve as anthems to his country as he inspires a positive attitude despite the challenges and downfalls of everyday life.

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
